Lajan Slim is Def Jam’s new future star taking off on a rollercoaster-like journey reaching new heights, following the success of his breakout single “Haitians.” Enjoying thousands of streams across various platforms and over half-a-million views for its visual adaptation, the Florida raised rapper has garnered attention and selling out shows throughout the country.
Lajan’s long going hustle paid off when he earned his first local hit in Broward County, Florida with “Quik Pik.” Named after the corner store located aroundthe neighborhood he grew up in, the single spread like wildfire due to word-of-mouth.

However, “Haitians” would put him on a national platform a year later including looks on XXL’s up-and-coming artist segment The Breaks and annotation giant Genius.
